Voluntary Population Planning Language Was Not Included in Subcontracts - USAID Acquisition Regulation (AIDAR) 752.7101, Voluntary Population Planning Activities

USAID Acquisition Regulation (AIDAR) 752.7101, Voluntary Population Planning Activities, requires insertion of contract clause stating that none of the funds made available under a contract shall be used to pay for the performance of involuntary sterilization as a method of family planning or to coerce or provide any financial incentive to any individual to practice sterilization.

It also prohibits abortion-related activities and identifies additional requirements for projects engaging in family planning activities.

General Recommendations

  • Provide documentation demonstrating the inclusion of the required voluntary population planning language in contracts for review.
